    Aerohive Overview:

    Aerohive Networks SR platforms combine enterprise-class access switching with cloudenabled management and on-demand provisioning to provide the industry’s most advanced networking feature set to the edge of your network. Built on the deep, feature-rich HiveOS operating system, the SR platforms offer state-of-the-art gigabit switching with advanced features like user-based QoS, storm control, and 802.1X multiple authentication for voice and data coexistence, along with traditional switch features such as LLDP, Spanning Tree, and IGMP snooping. Combining these capabilities with cloud-based services such as on-demand provisioning, hands-free configuration and updates, and unified wired and wireless policies allows the SRs to join the rest of the Aerohive Cooperative Control network to provide a seamless, high-quality enterprise-class experience for all connected users.

    Key Features and Benefits

    Secure Switching with On-Demand Provisioning
    The SR2148P platform is a 48-port Gigabit Ethernet access switch with 4 additional 10 Gigabit SFP ports. All Ethernet ports support high-power PoE (Power over Ethernet+), and the entire device supports the feature-rich capabilities of HiveOS, including RADIUS, 802.1X security, and cloud-based management. In addition, the SR2148P leverages Aerohive HiveOS cooperative control to provide robust switching functionality that is in harmony with the Wi-Fi infrastructure, including unified policy, management, and reporting. By integrating with the Aerohive Cloud Services Platform, the SR2148P can be brought online by simply shipping the equipment to the install site and plugging it in. The SR2148P will automatically find the HiveManager, either in Aerohive’s public cloud or on a customer premises, download complete configuration, security, and corporate policies, and instantly provide service for connected devices.

    Cloud-Enabled Stacking
    The SR2148P supports Aerohive Cooperative Control protocols, allowing it to interoperate with other HiveOS devices and securely share policy information. By using the unified policy configured in HiveManager, it is possible to combine multiple Aerohive SR2148Ps together to provide a seamless experience for connected clients, even if the devices aren’t in the same physical location. Devices can be put into groups and managed and monitored as a single group. Manage your entire access infrastructure without need for additional configuration, proprietary cables or protocols, or concern for geography.

    Infinitely Expandable
    The SR series easily combines with Aerohive Access Points and Branch Routers to create scalable and easily-managed enterprise-class solutions. A single unified policy dictates how and when users can connect via Ethernet or wireless – ensuring security regardless of how or where they connect.
